The uploaded file could not be moved to .

Off course my first serious blog is not about the things I like to do but about thing that don’t work.

Yesterday I wanted to ad a picture to one of my test post and WordPress replied: “The uploaded file could not be moved to .?

WTF?… My brand new, super fresh WordPress did not / wanted not / could not move a file to …. nothing.

First I thought it was because I used Firefox, but when I used IE I smiled. No answer there, well I couldn’t be the first to have this problem so I searched for my answer at wordpress.org and found my answer

It is simple: “Using a FTP application (Filezilla), visit the directory that is specified in that URL (/wp-content/uploads) and right click, set the permissions to 777.?

Only one thing worries me: “You can probably use something less risky then 777 but its best to try with that and then reduce it.?
Risky?? Reduce it back to 755???

The uploaded file could not be moved to .

Update #1. a lot of more geektalk about this problem in WordPress support.
